Shane Eagle, Nasty C and A-Reece's BET cypher is proof that SA hip-hop is in the right hands.
Three of South Africa's most potent young lyricists, Shane Eagle, Nasty C and A-Reece got to showcase their bars in this year's BET Hip Hop Awards. Their cypher, in which they rapped over Lil Wayne's "Banned From TV" instrumental, is proof that SA hip-hop is in the right hands.
A-Reece, who raps last, steals the show with a verse whose brevity does it more good than bad. Nasty C's one suffered from overstaying its welcome, it's still a dope verse nonetheless. Reece in his verse talks about flourishing as an independent artist and throws jabs at SA hip-hop's flirtations with kwaito.
